2 Questions...


1) Is there anyway to make and Acrobat file out of MathCAD?

2) Can i make a matrix of more than 100 (10x10, 20x50, 1x100, etc..) because let's say i like to make a matrix of 20x20 i can't! make it the only way i found is written the matrix in EXCEL and then paste it into MathCAD. Is there another "easy-fast" way to make it over MathCAD??


RE: 2 Questions...

1) "print" as usual with Acrobat.

2) you to have to use augment() etc for arrays bigger than 100x100 - see the mathcad knowledge base, or import them from Excel etc.  There is no way to input them directly - probably because arrays that size (with 10,000 elements for 100x100) are just too big for the average person to contemplate typing by hand.

Life is non-linear...

If you want a free program to make pdf files use pdf995 at www.pdf995.com

RE: 2 Questions...

MathCAD 12 can saveas HTML an dit comes out very nice.

RE: 2 Questions...

Also one thing, a friend has the MathCAD 12 but he says that is not very good, becasuse takes alot of memory, any one here has the same problem?? he reaches like 140K of memory and files with a lot of iteration takes like an eternity to load. Anyone with the same problem? or is the computer.

Main Specs: Pentium3-1Ghz, 256MB of RAM

I'm running MathCAD 11 on a Pentium4-1.5Ghz, 384MB of RAM and no problem.

RE: 2 Questions...

I don't have any speed problems, but I have dual 2.2GHz processors with 2GB RAM and 10,000 RPM SCSI RAID drives so I guess I can't complain !!

RE: 2 Questions...

For sure!, you don't have any problem. Anyone else?? that has this type of problem?
